effect of configure password policies on all accounts
Posted on 2006-05-17
I have a few questions on SBS. I am running SBS 2003 Premium.
1 - If I go through server management -> configure password policies, and actually configure values, will it apply to the admin account? What about built in service accounts for MSSQL, IIS, etc? Is this the preferred method, or should I create a GPO and configure, link that?
2 - I have several remote users on laptops out in the field. They are using OWA and VPN to get to shares. They are only in the office a few times a year. I am concerned about locking them out. I did not set these laptops up so I an unsure of the local admin passwords.
3 - What is a good method for allowing a user remote access to their PC here on site? I have a remote user that needs to run Access databases and Great Plains accounting software. I am thinking of setting up a 2nd public IP to route him to his desktop here in the office, (if I can get another public IP). If I cannot, how would this be handled? I do not want the user to RDP into the server, and I have not setup the remote work feature and do not know what it has to offer. I do have VPN setup, so I could try having him VPN in and then RDP to his desktop....
Thanks - Wayne
